I wish there was more told about their marriage
There were a lot of touching scenes and I shed more than a few tears. I liked the way that the relationship developed between the Hero and Heroine; they had both lost their spouse. However, I was disappointed that there was not any story of their lives after their marriage.
For those who do not like all the sex in romances, this book will not offend you. Their is only one partial intimate encounter.
The narrator was much better than the last book, thank gosh.
Unfortunately, none of the books are as good as book 1;or even book 0. Book one was 30+ hours and felt like a true complete story. All the others have been less than 1/2 the length and, therefore, 1/2 a story. I will try one more book, in the series. If it isn't any better, I will likely stop listening to this series.
